Football is killing itself. People would soon tire of seeing the same matches every year, especially if those clubs are not there on merit
And particularly when sides keep getting "randomly" drawn against each other.

If they're going to do with what the tweet in moomba's post suggests, they may as well scrap being able to have teams from the same country in the same group/play each other in the last 16 too.

Praying the tournament gets finished in some capacity, really interesting mix of teams left in this years competition.

What I have read is they will aim to finish the leagues and domestic cups by end of July and then have all the remaining CL clubs in the same European location and EL clubs in another European location in August and finish both competition in a sort of World Cup knockout tournament setting. I like the sound of it personally, this way the leagues won’t be start/stopped for European competition.

Couldn't agree more mate, lets hope it all pans out that way.

Rd of 16 2nd legs - August 7-8
Qtr finals - August 12-15
Semi finals - August 18-19
Final - August 23

Seems like it's 1 game ties from qtr final onwards...more of a world cup/euro format and more luck will be involved just to make the final

Not ideal, but far better than having it all voided.
